everyone needs a black forest house, don’t you think? a modern cottage tucked away beneath green pines away from the bustle of a busy city life. i love this space from light locations, a black cladded home in east sussex, england. the light furnishings, textiles and accessories are a lovely contrast to the cottage’s modern black exterior. i’ll bet it’s quite a comforting surprise to walk in and find so much calm.

  1. I just saw a black house in a movie the other day and was thinking how cool that would be (granted I wasn’t living anywhere hot) – it’s so unexpected!

  2. love this house. i love all the soft colors, and then those tiny hints of yellow throughout. and, you can tell they love to display their collections, but they everything else is so muted that it doesn’t seem cluttered. great house.

  3. Love everything about this house except the location. If it were in the wood of northern CA it would be perfect, but anywhere in Britain – no, no, and no again. When we took our kids to England we were there from May 25 to June 8. It got above 70 degrees twice, both on the two days we had sun. For a cottage in the woods in England, you want cozy. You want color and texture and open fires and curtains on the windows to keep out cold and damp. That interior looks wonderful, but to live in it in that location you would have to be bundled up in woolens for 335 days a year!
